Thank you to our sponsor this week Streamr.

Streamr has just launched their global pub/sub network for machine data. Unlike a cloud based data pipeline, the Streamr Network runs peer-to peer, in a system that offers a smart balance between high privacy and low latency as well as MQTT support.

If you want to start using it today, just visit streamr.network.

For more on the Streamr offering, have a listen to the episode we did last year with their co-founder Henri Pihkala
